Cedric to Arthur about Merlin[src]
Cedric was a thief who became possessed by the spirit of Cornelius Sigan.


Cedric was in the Tavern when a miner working under the castle told him about a 'Jewel' the size of a fist. Cedric came up with a series of lies and plans to try and get access to Arthur's Chambers to steal the key to the tomb. Cedric was then favoured by Arthur, replacing Merlin as his manservant so that he could steal the beautiful 'Jewel' found in the tomb underneath Camelot.

However, the Jewel actually contained the soul of Cornelius Sigan, a powerful and evil sorcerer from Camelot's past, who possessed Cedric's body. Sigan later released himself from Cedric's body when he attempted to take over Merlin's, who

resisted using a powerful spell Kilgharrah gave him, and trapped Cornelius back into the jewel he was in before the possession. The fate of Cedric is unknown, but he may have died, been arrested or fled Camelot (The Curse of Cornelius Sigan).
